With 2 children whom i do not give tea to,i decided to come up with my own version of instant chocolate that did not have all the extra sugar added to most brands.
After reading all the ingredients contained in most brands,i came up with a version that so far seems healthy enough for me as it only requires very little sweetening or none at all.
It costs more but is definitely worth the effort.
100 grammes unsweetened cocoa powder
250 grammes milk powder
200 grammes dark chocolate
1.Roughly chop the dark chocolate or grate it.
2.Pour the milk chocolate into a bowl,add the milk powder and the dark chocolate mix with a fork then put into an air tight container with a lid.Give a thorough shake then store it .
To prepare the hot chocolate:
In a small saucepan over low heat , pour a glass of milk then add a heaped tablespoon of the cocoa mix.
Use a whisk to mix in the cocoa mixture till there are no lumps ,make sure not to let the milk boil.Just let it heat through till the chocolate is melted and then serve.
Add a marshmallow or two to your hot drink for special effect.
The result is a frothy chocolate drink that is simply out of this world.
